Aqua Sphere Swim Giveaway

Aqua Sphere Swim GearIt's summer in a big way here and I've got such a great package to give you this weekend!

I've been learning how to kayak in preparation for a camping/kayaking trip next month in Valdez and I met up with Aqua Sphere, a company that makes fantastic active swim wear for just such an occasion.

They sent me some of their goggles, a kid sized Stingray Core Warmer and a lady's Aqua Skin to try out and after giving them a go I don't think I could sing enough praises.

The thing about water in Alaska is that it's cold. Really cold, even in summer and I used that Aqua Skin while in the kayak when I had to flip myself over and escape underwater and I don't think I could have done it very well without the gear. I was so nice and warm that the water even felt good.

Aqua Sphere Swim GearAnyway, I was very impressed with the suit and will be bringing it on my kayaking trip--because the water will be even colder than it was at the lake where we practiced. They seriously saved my life!

So if you're planning on being in the water at all this summer you really ought to check out their line of products--keeping your muscles warm in cold water is not only more comfortable but it prevents injuries. And besides keeping you warm in the water Aqua Skins are good for sun protection to keep your skin safe too.

Aqua Sphere Swim GearThe company has generously offered the same package they sent me including:

• Seal Kid Swim Mask
• Stingray Core Warmer
• Kaiman Lady Goggles
• Aqua Skin Lady Full Suit

To get your name in the pot for the giveaway see the directions below and give Aqua Sphere a good look--they'll keep you warm all summer. You'll be seeing more pictures of my kayaking next month!

Here's how to win:

Now, ladies swimwear won't do me much good, but let me put in a shout out for ^Mylestones^, we've never met, but as a fellow Mainah, I must recommend recommend them!

Oops! It's early, sorry for the double recommend up there :)

I would enter, but chances are we would die of heat exhaustion down here in SC if we went swimming in that. Or, well, maybe in January.

I've always wanted to try Kayaking but for some reason I haven't. Okay, it's going on my list of things to do before I'm 50.

We're about to buy a sailboat. I'm not planning to be in the water too much, but you never know...! (And I'd love to try kayaking sometime, anyway.)
